Weʼre raising £1,000 to ensure the vanilla farming communities in the Sava region in Madagascar continue to thrive.

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Madagascar may be a small island but it reigns absolut in the world of vanilla, producing 80% of all the world’s harvest every year. Though vanilla is the second‐most expensive spice in the world, with kilo prices reaching almost $400 in the global market in 2016, in the vanilla‐producing Sava region in the northern part of the island of Madagascar, most farmers live near or below the poverty‐line.

For the month of October, I'll be visiting this area to better understand how a multi-stakeholder partnership is helping to improve the livelihood of these vanilla farming communities.

To help try and break this cycle of poverty from generation to generation, I'll be working with these stakeholders to develop communication materials to ensure the continued investment in this great cause.

Your contributions will be to help fund the creation of these materials locally in Madagascar.
